How many hours would you expect a 2nd or 3rd year associate to bill on drafting core Series B financing docs with simple to moderate updates over the Series A, but no prior knowledge of the client/cap?
Just curious on other people's opinions here. Quick background: I've been working 2 years at UHY as an audit associate and 1 as a PWC associate.
I've lost motivation, mainly due to the fact I'm working as the manager and senior on 1 client and the senior on 6 other clients since last June. Obviously, still getting paid as an associate. While working 80-90 hours, I now make less than my roommate who doesn't have a degree and works between 35-38 hours a week. Should I start looking for a new job?
Anyone going to be in SF during the week? I’m on a project by myself for the next few months. Would be nice to grab a drink after work.

I got released from a project of a client along with few other people. Now I am being asked to interview for the same client. Only 3 months back I cleared their interview. Now got released and again getting interviewed at the same? Anyone had similar experience? I had a very bad experience with that client company as a vendor and now I don't want to go back there. What should I do? Any help please.
Business consultants focusing on wealth & asset management - what types of projects do you typically work on?
Is your role more strategy (solution design) or project management (execution) focused?
lam about to join a new org in a few days and they have planned a travel to Europe for me to get Technical KT. But the thing is they said only for 2 weeks. They are going to file a business visa(l can stay up to 90 days). I want to spend some more time there( atleast 2 months). How I can convince them to increase this duration?
Since I will be new there l'm not sure what to say. Only thing I know at this time is, the project is a bit complex and all developers are outside India.
My main contact at my client always interrupts me and talks over me when he asks a question and I start to answer it. At first I was trying to be polite, now I just get louder and keep talking. 💁🏽♀️

DUDES. I was venting about a dumb basic slideshow I need to do by tomorrow morning because the client doesn’t know what risks/ICs are, and then need to build a specific template. My 7yo was like, let me help!! (Zoom in, it’s all her work) 😂
Staffing a part time side project that counts towards utilization at my firm. Unfortunately due to small budget cuts had to tell some of the part time staff who were contributing a few hours a week to the project that we would need them to step back from the project. Sent them an email immediately and thanked them for their time, and told them would love to work together again in the future. Is this fine or do I need to also meet with them to reassure them in a case like this?

Are there any groups at Salesforce that value developers? I'm in Q Branch and it baffles me how solution engineers make $30-$40k (I make $99k) more than me when I've been developing on the Salesforce platform for 8 years. I get that they are client facing but if it wasn't for my team and me, they wouldn't land as many big deals. I could make $140k elsewhere for context

His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.
So I had a call with a with a recruiter two weeks ago and she asked for my salary range and I told her $120k-$150k she said she would submit me me at $140-$150 well the role was put on hold due to an acquisition. She has referred me for another role and we had the preliminary discussion but salary wasn’t mentioned should I assume that it’s the same salary range or should I inquire and is so how should I frame my inquiry?

How is everyone staying motivated at work while going through fertility treatments? On days when I have appts or get my period, all I want to do is google and read forums about it. My utilization is tanking (not because I’m blowing off work, but because I need to find and take on new work) but can’t get the energy to). I’ve told my manager about what I’m going through and she is supportive, but feeling guilty when I hear about how busy everyone around me is and I just can’t find the motivation.

Thoughts on Bo Burnham's Inside? It's honestly depressing not only in content but also to see one person create something so amazing just on their own. Here I am struggling just to make an alright ad, meanwhile I should probably just forget ads and actually make something decent instead. Sigh.

Is 100$ hour rate for freelancing intermediate level (working 6 years now) graphic designer/art director based inLA a lot?

How do you know if working in advertising is not right for you? First creative job and I can’t tell if it’s imposter syndrome, growing pains, or if I just should give up pursuing advertising.
If you’re going for an interview and you’ve looked at their portfolio do you compliment it or just act like you didn’t stalk them beforehand?
Everyone villain-izing OP to be a social justice warrior but they’re simply saying that todays ads are actually not as diverse as they need to be. Diversity = every shade of skin. Not just the marketable ones ❤️
Slick trick. Write the diversity into the script. For example, give them a traditionally Latin/Asian/etc. name, first or last.
It’s how I got a blended Latin family in a general market spot. The client tried many times to get us to change their names to something more Eurocentric. I refused. It ultimately drove our casting decisions and gave us something to fall back on when the client attempted to go with “what they feel comfortable with” as we made our selects.
It was the first time I’d done something like that. I think I’m going to do more of it in the future.
You develop a campaign with multiple executions, with diversity within the campaign. Individual executions each feature their own insights.
Client buys the campaign but cuts the budget (just like they did the last time they wanted a campaign!) so there’s only going to be one execution - for general market.
You learn this during the pre-pro.
Since they featured an “ethnically ambiguous” family last time (dark haired, slightly tan family that could be LatinX or Italian 🤷🏼♂️), they want to “cover all their bases”.
Client is -however - delighted with the backup location so the account guy considers the pre pro a success.
You and your director look at the diverse cast you have assembled, and debate about which new interracial pairing “feels right”.
You then have a beleaguered casting agent sending you headshots of kids that “might work”. You pick two kids and send your new family to the client at 9 pm PST.
Call time is 6 am because you’re going to lose the backup location at noon (which is why it was the backup).
Your new family shows up and meet for the first time. You get them into hair and makeup as you’re still waiting for client approval on the kids no one has even seen act.
Client begrudgingly calls account guy at 10:00 am to say they approve of the kids, but they aren’t happy with the process and it merits a serious discussion with the entire team on how “we do this moving forward.”
You roll at 11:00 MOS with your new interracial family sitting at a kitchen table eating cereal/sandwiches/salad/dessert.
10 weeks later, your conservative friend turns to you after seeing the commercial and asks why every couple they see on TV is interracial.
You forgot the Account person putting time on your calendar in the middle of a shoot day to discuss those process concerns.
Latinos are grossly underrepresented in advertising but nobody says anything because people only see black and white in 2022
I feel you. I’m on a brand that’s trying to present more Latin talent and the biggest solve seems to be truly understanding the culture and creating something authentic. Latin culture is so interesting and varies based on region, country, etc. i think a lot of advertisers or brands are nervous to screw it up
Can we please move away from having nothing but all-white agencies strategizing what skin color will best strike a balance between looking progressive and driving profits?
Yeah that’s fair. We definitely have a few clients that are very…..particular, to say the least. The classic “yeah I know she’s a lesbian, but she can be kissing her partner so everyone else knows?” type…
I agree but for different reasons. I want to see all black couples, Latino couples etc. I do not feel we should shoe horn a white pardon into an ad for the sake of it
How long did we have all white couples in ads? 50+ years? More? I think you can handle a little representation. Such a weird hill to die on.
@acd3 Ok now what?
Tell it to my clients, please! I keep proposing more diverse talent in ads but I generally get pushback from the client side.
How overt are they about it? I'd love to hear their justification if you press them on the rationale..
When clients do want Latinos cast, it’s one look only: “ethnically ambiguous” or “Mediterranean look,” which means “Italianish, but lighter-skinned, and definitely not black or indigenous.”
What do you propose as the alternative?
Black and white couples with green alien children
Think CD 4 pretty much nailed it. I think what OP is implying is that every ad has become a United colors of Benetton ad or an effort to check every imaginable box to appease everyone. Diversity. Check. Disability. Check. LBGTQ…etc check. No need to jam it all into one.
Would be interesting to see how this plays out across a big brand that employs different multicultural agencies and what the cultural strategies are how everything maps out.
